“Rockin’ The Rez”
is an annual benefit concert established as a means of raising money for, and bringing attention to, deprived Native Indian reservations across America (click here to donate).
IT IS IMPORTANT TO KNOW THAT "ROCKIN' THE REZ" IS NOT NECESSARILY "A NATIVE EVENT", RATHER, "AN EVENT FOR A NATIVE CAUSE".
November, 2010, brought many concerned individuals to the grounds of the Chumash Indian museum (Thousand Oaks, CA), where the very first concert was held for the Lakota people of the Pine Ridge reservation, South Dakota. The event had several talented musicians perform, including artists from Hawaii and New York, who heard about the event and wanted to help.
To date, the event has brought on stage the two time NAMMY award winning Gray Wolf Blues band, the very talented sound of “Outlaw and the Soul Strings”, the folkadelic “Joee Corso band”, the incredible “No Duh”, a fantastic “No Doubt” tribute band and “The Main Ingredient”, featuring Cuba Gooding Sr.
Proceeds from the concerts have gone to help provide propane for families on the Pine Ridge reservation, to help get them through the harsh South Dakota winters (see "matching funds" page). But our goal is to be able to provide much more that that in the future. Our services also aim to spill over to other reservations.

"Rockin' The Rez"
Type your paragraph here.
The best HEART tribute band in the country, "DOG AND BUTTERFLY", will make you feel as though you're watching the real band. Their voices - incredible. The music - outstanding. The performance - WOW!!... Opening for the band will be "MOUSEFROG", jamming rockin' sounds of the 70's and 80's.
The event will be held at the famous Sagebrush Cantina, in Calabasas, CA. where you can purchase scrumptious appetizers, entrees, beer, wine and mixed drinks. Parking is available for a small fee ($3.50, last checked) or you can find parking on the street.
This is a night that you don't want to miss.
Proceeds of this event will go toward assisting families on the Pine Ridge Indian reservation (South Dakota), to help get them through the upcoming harsh winter.
A minimum donation of $10.00 is required at the door.
